Love Island viewers upset with Wes for ‘playing’ Laura
Wes and Laura have been together since early in the series.
Love Island viewers have turned on Wes Nelson after he seemed to patch up his relationship with Laura Anderson just because Ellie Brown had given him the brush off.
Wes and Laura’s romance has seemed solid but was rocked by the arrival of Ellie, who caught Wes’s eye.
He and Laura fell out over the newcomer and their future looked shaky, with Wes confessing in the Beach Hut that he was questioning their compatibility.
“She’s not hearing what I have to say,” he said. “She’s hearing, but she’s not listening.
“The way that she’s handled herself in this puts me off. Being confrontational puts me off. Not trusting me, puts me off.”
However, Ellie later made it clear she was not looking to pursue anything with Wes – and he rushed straight back to Laura proclaiming she was top of his list.
However, fans of the ITV2 reality show were suspicious about his motives.
“Wes going straight back to Laura right after Ellie told him she’s not gonna get involved with him…. OH THE INFURIATION AHHHH,” said one person on Twitter.
“Slime ball No2 #wes #LoveIsland gets rejected by the new girl, goes back to a dead cert,” said another.
One joked: “Does Wes not realise there are cameras in the villa?”

“Wes decides that he wants Laura & that they have ‘something special’ the moment Ellie lets him know she isn’t interested. Typical guy!!!!” said another.
Another said Wes was “playing such a game” with Laura.
